    • Brythonic Commonwealth also releases to RUSSIA and DENMARK ONLY plans for a weaponization platform in space scheduled to begin research in 1964.
    • In the post of China he already stated that the Chinese man was the first man in space. You can't contradict what people have already posted.
    • 'Yes we can. We'll simply state that they were mistaken.'
    • Hey - my original post had the parliament be angry and move Vostok-1 forward to March 12th instead of April 12th. I just thought that we had reached an agreement before that a Dane would be the first in space.
    • China still beats us if we put it in March, Lx.
  • The Brythonic Commonwealth makes plans to send the astronaut Leon Willis into space where he will remain for two weeks before returning to Earth.

  • I do not understand the current situation. I explicitly called the first man in space and Crim agreed to let me have it. Like Russia with the nuke I was going to launch a man for Russia, Wales and Denmark. Gone back on his word Crim has. Like this Yoda does not.
  • China got their man in space...I panicked and added the space part after my edit conflict... I didn't want others superseding the Danish-Russian-Welsh space program,..names can be changed...quite easily...just name the first cosmonaut/astronaut and it shall be done.
  • No word was given and the agreement was conditional. You made it clear that my side of the deal wasn't happening.
  • OK then. Giving the date of your launch proved fatal for your launch as we beat you.
  • Did you just edit Lx's turn?
  • Actually, since he gave that his guy was the first in space, you can't say you beat China. He posted first and explicitly said his man was first. Furthermore, you can't "hear about the Chinese Space program and move your program back to January 1" all on January 1, as you would only control this year, not last year. China won, stop whining about it.
    • It was on the 13th. Not the first.
  • Hey - my original post had the parliament be angry and move Vostok-1 forward to March 12th instead of April 12th. I just thought that we had reached an agreement before that a Dane would be the first in space.
    • I called dibs on it, so I don't see why we're having this argument in the first place.
  • Australia signs a military alliance agreement with Denmark. Meanwhile, Australia continues to industrialize. It also founds the Australian Defence Force.

Soon the cats begin to run toward her, however, Sonja Komeiji's quick to respond and runs. She manages to reach a door at the end of the hall and close it quickly. The cats then stop at the door and just stare. Sonja Komeiji then runs up the stairs to the third floor and sees this next hall being filled with purple and black tiles in a chequered fashion. Soon as she walks down the hall and finally approaches the end of it. However at the end, there is a painting of what looks like Utsuho Reiuji, in the style as if she's ready to launch an attack. Sonja Komeiji gets scared, and decides to run out. However, she trips midway back to the door, but she manages to get back up a few minutes later, and manages to reach the door, but before she opens it she sees a kitten again. Knowing it's a trap, Sonja runs the other way and begins taking the central stairs down. Soon she reaches the first floor, and makes it to the door and runs out of the palace in tears and fear. Eventually, Sonja Komeiji manages to run into her other sister, Kyllikki Komeiji and she begins to tell her what happened and what she wanted to do. Kyllikki Komeiji then hugs Sonja and soon she decides to go to the Palace herself. Three nights later, Kyllikki Komeiji goes to the Tsuyukusa Eastern Palace and Sonja Komeiji waits outside this time. As Kyllikki Komeiji enters the palace, she sees the same kitten that Sonja saw. Though she ignores it and goes and takes the central stairs. She reaches the third floor, walks down the hallway, and also sees the same painting that Sonja saw. After that, Kyllikki Komeiji begins to open the door on the left, and enters the room. However, she sees that the room is filled with a few drawings of butterflies, and a few paintings of Yuyuko Saigyouji and Youmu Konpaku can be seen. Though she doesn't find Orvokki anywhere, and so she leaves and closes the door behind her. Then proceeds to look at some of the other doors until a bit down past midway, she opens that door and sees Empress Orvokki Komeiji watching some television. Empress Orvokki Komeiji then turns and becomes curious of what her sister is up to, and so asks. Soon Kyllikki Komeiji then discusses about all that happened with Sonja, and after that, requests that supplies stop being sent to Onguayal. Empress Orvokki Komeiji looks at her with disappointment, and disagrees. Later, the phone rings and Empress picks it up. It is Shogun Yuyuko Kekkonen on the phone, and requests to stop sending supplies. However, the Empress refuses, and soon hangs up and runs out. Kyllikki Komeiji tries to chase her, but can't find her anywhere else in the palace. Later, she leaves the palace, and walks back home with Sonja, in disappointment, while Sonja is still angered. Three months later, Shogun Yuyuko Kekkonen gets a call from the Empress, telling her to cut off the supplies.

New animation films continue to be showed in the Safaia Elokuva theatre and more are created. Meanwhile, a Kōshi Yakuza, the Lappalainen-kai (has 20 members), calls the SDL an illegal drug-based organisation due to the fact that the letters can be easily switched around to read LSD and the fact its filled with snobbish people interfering in wars that have nothing to do with them. The Yakuzas become more active in the Region of Kōshi again. WMDs continue to be stockpiled but with the resurgence of the Yakuzas, the government starts to worry about the Yakuzas getting their hands on the WMDs and then using them or selling them to other dangerous organisations.

Upon her return she tells the Nipponese media about her trip into space and predicts that one day the human race will conquer the stars as in some of the popular sci-fi anime shows on the television. Other events include the Takeda Pharmaceutical Company inventing Diazepam and the drug begins to be used to treat anxiety, insomnia, and symptoms of acute alcohol withdrawal among other things. The Nipponese Plantation Company invents the non-dairy creamer too.

The nations of Saxony, Brandenburg, Hanover and Bavaria declare independence from the disintegrating German nation. The Rhrineland territories join with the Republic of Alsatia, as they have a common Germanic heritage.

The Burgundians officially declare independence from France. They crown the oldest remaining member of the original Burgundian royal family as King Louis IV.

Am I going to be correct in assuming that this is the most France proper is going to lose? They still have a few colonies and puppets to lose, but there really aren't any other areas of France that have a distinct enough culture to break away.
I'm still thinking about starting a civil war between government forces and hard-line Collectivists.

Shogun Yuyuko Kekkonen improves the economy again and makes neutral policies; and also orders clean-up and aid to the damage some of the winter storms caused in Northern Finland. Shinto Shrines that were damaged by the winter storms are repaired. The huge motorway system continues being built in Finland, along with liikennevalot. Animation films and Anime and Manga are continued to be made too. Satomi Karjalainen's Satoyori (さとより) Company continues to making/building cars and military equipment (tanks, weapons, etc.) while Ayumi Rahikkala's Tōhōnokia continues to making phones.

New animation films continue to be shown in the Safaia Elokuva theatre and more are created. Hearing the police is stepped up, some of the Yakuzas go to hide and work underground. The confederacy also begin talks with Sunda to bail out their economy and maybe having Sunda becoming a member nation/region of the confederacy.
  • People's Republic of Käwäshiro heavily builds up military, continues industrialisation, building infrastructure. President Janika Erkkilä has more military equipment built. Premier Mauno Miyako continues to improve the road system a bit; and he also continues military support in support of Onguayal against Fjordlaand. Premier Mauno Miyako ends the Suuri Harppaus by the end of the year, as the economy had been a bit in decline; so he goes back to the drawing board.

  • Austria: Austria offers to Sell the Austrian colony for 50 Million. Military and infrastructure is updated some with tech and Economy.
    • Denmark offers 47 million.
    • Czechland offers 60 million.
    • I doubt Czechland can actually offer 60 million without going into bankruptcy.
    • The Czechs are small and not very wealthy, they can't afford that. Plus, the Czechs don't even border an ocean, and don't have any real with a sea-bordering nation, so they can't even buy the colony.
    • Wales offers 57 million with trade options and military bases
    • The Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha offer Austria 30 million to gain control which the commonwealth claim is theirs rightfully, anyway. The nation is greatly annoyed that they have to pay to take control of the land which was claimed by the Commonwealth years before Austria set up a colony there. But they recognise that some compensation should be paid so 30 million is put on the table. The Commonwealth would also be quite hostile to any other nation taking control of this colony as the Commonwealth laid claim to the land many years before the Austrian colony was founded and the land is rightfully part of Ngainkeha.
  • The Russian Luna-3 probe is very successful in bringing back what it was meant to do: intact photographs of the Lunar Far side, the fist ever taken in existance. Man has seen the Lunar far side for the first time. In its five orbits around the moon, the probe gives the Russians a valid mapping of the Lunar Surface. The 58 year old Emperor proclaims that he will strive to live until the Russian Commonwealth and Evrokosmos have successfuly landed on the moon, and he gives the equivalent of JFK's "We Chose to go to the Moon" speech in front of the Duma after the photographs from Luna-3 have been recovered and reavealed them to the public at the same time. Meanwhile, Evrokosmos works on Bettering the photographic capabilities of satellites for meteorologica [but really reconnaissance and espionage ... shhhhh! that's a secret only Wales and Denmark should know!!!] purposes. The Russian military amps up, building more and more Missile silos and working on better, more acurate and efficiant ICBMs MRBMs and theater ballistic missiles. RUssia stockpiles more nuclear bombs, and Project Ivan the Terrible begins. Russia commissions more nuclear subs, and its naval capacity surpases that of Nippon. Evrokosmos sends three Cosmonauts into Space at one time, One Welsh, One Russian, and the other, a Dane. The misison, Dubbed Sever-Vostok-Zapad (North-East-West), Launches Vostok 3, 4 and 5. Plans for Vostok 6 and 7, Carrying the fist Russian Woman into Space, Are planned to launch next year...And that is the End of the Vostok programme, Evrokosmos Starts The Voshod programme, with a modified Vostok Spacefrat modified for a planned three-man Crew (TOP SECRET). The Winter is harsh, but the Russian people, more used to it than most of Europe, survive, this cold not being worse than that of 1812, and they didn't have electric heaters back then! The Russians slowly recover from the winter, and the roads break more than expected, as well as some small villages and towns losing power, causing 16-20 deaths due to freezing across Russia ... mostly seniors. The senate sends its condolences. A New model of Luna Probe is worked on for Luna-4, the "second Generation" probe. Russia suggests the policy of advancing robotics and systems so that there can be Automated test flights of all technology without people, and have various pieces of tech without men return to capsules and such to ensure no death occur ... the "Probe before man" approach. Meanwhile, the female candidate for The Vostok-7 mission is chosen to be Valentina Tereshkova, The honor to pilot Vostok 6 is given to a Welshman. A Russian researcher in Moscow University accidentally invents Penicillin...an excellent and cheap antibiotic... Most everyone in Russia is getting Smallpox vaccines at birth.

  • Newfoundland expands 84000 sq km.
  • Pahang builds up its military along the border with Mystiää. They again try to make propaganda claiming that Mystiää is an imperialist set-up made by the Koreans, Swedish and Finns, and they claim that anti-imperialism in Juche is hypocritical, as without invasion they would be part of Pahang.
    • President Ano Aaltonen manages to block out and censor the Pahang propaganda to prevent it from leaked into the nation, and also releases counter-propaganda to his citizens of Mystiää. He also orders for anyone trying to find out the truth be secretly being taken away by the 'police'.
  • Istoias builds up its military, wary that a new war could break out soon.
  • Calora expands 4000 sq km farther into South America.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces more Ennetsu grade nuclear bombs including the new Ennetsu V2 class H-bomb (OTL Tsar Bomba). The first bomb of this new class was originally designed to have a yield of about 100 megatons of TNT (420 PJ), but the yield was reduced by Nipponese engineers to 50 megatons in order to reduce nuclear fallout (and also to prevent the blast from destroying the drop aircraft). The test took place on Karaginsky Island and the attempt was successful, as it was one of the cleanest (relative to its yield) nuclear bombs ever detonated as well as being the most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated. Nippon produces more nuclear submarines and more aircraft carriers including the new Kyodai kigyō class aircraft carrier with the aircraft carrier the Doru dora being commissioned (equivalent of OTL USS Enterprise basically) being the world's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and the world's largest aircraft carrier, too thus cementing Nippon's position as the world's strongest navy - not Russia. Nippon's space programme continues as the programme team up with the Sumitomo group to send into space the world's first active communications satellite. Another two reconnaissance satellites are sent into space along with another weather satellite too. The Furukawa zaibatsu invent the audio cassette and the Mitsubishi group invents silicon breast implants. Toshiba invent the world's first video game Uchū sensō (Space War, yes this is based on OTL Spacewar), they then go on to release a computer game version of noughts and crosses (tic, tac, toe to you Americans) and tennis game (OTL Tennis for Two basically). Also Nipponese stationary company Pentel, achieves great fame after the felt/fiber-tip pen is invented by Yukio Horie, the owner of Pentel.
    • Didn't we say no Technology before its time? the thing with the Tsar bomb...nice meta gaming there...did you not notice "Project Big Ivan/Ivan the Terrible". And also, Fallout would reach Russian populated area...Aka it would be a declaration of Nuclear war...first you steal Sputnik by having the same design, and now you Stole the Tsar Bomb! Wait two more years until 1963 like it was actualy done as was done with Sputnik. Unlike Russia, Nippon has no project to create the Tsar bomb...just saying.
    • 'The Tsar bomba was invented in 1961, so it is not "technology ahead of its time"'. If they are contaminating Russia with nuclear fallout, then it could lead to nuclear war...
    • I have H-bombs, they are being improved upon to make a new class of H-bomb equivalent to OTL Tsar bomba which was done in 1962, a year after it was done in OTL which was 1961. Blowing up the bomb there is the safest place in the Nipponese empire. Nippon are planning on giving up their nuclear base in the Commonwealth of Eetoria and Nganinkeha to have a nuclear testing site in their own nation. Anyway before you start on Nippon for contaminating Russia, you might want to do something about the contaminating of Russia by your own bombs. No one has said a thing about nuclear fallout in this game so far, so to start a war over something which hasn't even been properly looked into and researched seems fairly implausible. And populated Russian areas? It's Siberia, it's hardly Moscow levels of population. the effects won't be noticed for decades. It's gonna hit Nipponese territory too, but you want to start a war over something which is virtually unknown in the game world and takes years for effects to appear anyway? Do something about all the irradiated Russians caused by your own efforts before starting a war you won't win. Also meta-gaming? I'm inventing things as they're invented in OTL, when else am I meant to invent them?
    • Sorry...I got the bomb mixed up with something else...and oh wait ... things are coming and Russia will supercede you one way or another....let's hope we don't start nuclear winter by detonating 100 MT! Also, Russia blew up their bombs in the near-unpopulated north, mostly in the Northern Novaya Zemlya archipelago and a few in Kazakhstan in the very beginning...discovering Nuclear Glass! The bomb site is so dangerously close to Russian Territory.
  • Chamoru amp up the military and the Chamorro pharmaceutical company Norratsu develop Ketamine as a derivative of phencyclidine. Ketamine testing and investigations demonstrate that ketamine's shorter duration of action and lesser psychomimetic profile make it favourable over PCP as a "dissociative" anesthetic.
  • The Nipponese Dominion of Shuubudan amp up their military and the nation bans most drugs used for non-medical purposes (i.e. getting high). The Hippuzu movement people begin to leave Shuubudan to live in more drug tolerant nations, a lot of them move to Chamoru, the commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha, Nippon and Wonderlaand as their drug policies are a lot more lenient than Shuubudan's.

  • The Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha amp up their military and the Commonwealth continue to negotiate with Austria to try to solve the problem of Austria infringing on the territorial claims of the Commonwealth. This seems to be taking the form of the Commonwealth buying the Austrian colony.
  • Wonderlaand finishes rebuilding itself following the war, andPpresident Einar Hulda organises a referendum to join Scandinavia next year. He does this to bring all of Wonderlaand round to the idea as he battles against the anti-unionists, anti-Denmark Swedish nationalists and those who think this will damage Wonderlaand's close relations with its Asian allies like Nippon and the Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha.
    • You can't join Scandinavia. You are too far away.
  • Mauritius amps up their military and continues breeding Dodos on a large scale, as the global Dodo trade spreads worldwide as Dodos are now farmed in almost every developed nation, albeit not on the same large scale of chickens and other more popular poultry birds.
  • Kongo expands by 50,000 sq km to the south.
  • Bharat funds more money into its army, and this helps to manufacture advanced tanks. They are also proud that the countries with the second and third largest fleets are fighting each other for the higher spot, and cannot compete with Bharat itself, as it builds the largest battleship(s) in the world, followed by creating more aircraft carriers, almost as large as Nippon's flagship. Bharat also churns out the first of its own nuclear submarines with ICBMs. These can operate anywhere in the world. B.A.S.A continues sending more weather satellites over the planet, and the tests begin to show more progress. A satellite is also launched to orbit the moon then return to Earth with information. It returns and tells scientists a lot about the moon and its composition. B.A.S.A's rocket is finished this year. It is too late to beat the other powers into space, but it does manage to get Bharati Astronauts into space nonetheless. It sets the record for getting the first women into space. War of the Worlds! is on its last year of being aired, it is a regret, but its run has been very successful. Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabi Bahu Thi continues to be aired as people continue watching it. The BBC continues to cover all the launches into space and proudly report on the first Bharatis going into space. HP Computers make more progress this year. HP computers continue to make good progress on CGI technology. The Times continues to spread, and expands services. Tata's Air corps begin to design better helicopters. Gunships helicopters continue to be produced, while bigger transport helicopters are almost ready to be produced. The Manhav Desai F-4 Bhoot continues to be produced and more of the F-4's get delivered to the air force. The fighter is designed into a fighter-bomber varient as well. More are ordered as wars seem on the horizon. The Prince begins to spend more time in Finland. The Nuclear Agency watches over the stock-piling of nuclear bombs. They continue to research the properties of nuclear power for commercial use. ICBMs begin to be produced in large numbers with atomic warheads. The colonies declare independence. They bring back troops from Onguayal, while amp up to invade the small former Spanish colony for Bengal.

They take most of their national matters into their hands, although they continue to green the desert and grow crops with the extra rainfall. Bharat recognises this new Federation bids them good luck.
  • Sindu begins to experience independence movements of its own this year as the Australian colonies declare independence. Therefore, the colony only expands (1150 [using grey expansion] * 7 * 1.5 * 3 * 1.5 [next to civil chaos]) 54,350 km. It seems that extra land for farming has helped expand the country, through the movements.

Kyllikki Komeiji and Sonja Komeiji welcome the new law, and hope that Finland can be in peace for many years to come. Empress Orvokki Komeiji however is a bit worried about the idea, but is soon heavily convinced by Sonja Komeiji so she then agrees to it, which Empress does, and so she then gladly accepts this new change.

By the 9th month, he decides he had enough of these little Pahangers and declares war on them; he states that they are a bunch of capitalist pigs, and filled with snobbish rich people who steal from the poor, and are filled with corporate greed. He hopes to try to get them to stop what their doing and make them leave his nation alone. Soon tanks come smashing into Pahang... (okay, now somewhat of a Korean War parallel, only this one is to ¿survive or fall? [as in if Mystiää will stay or be gone themselves])
    • Pahang declares that they will defend themselves from the collectivist creation of the imperialists. The Pahangese call for New Maya, Sunda, Saigyō, Ternate, and all other Southeast Asian nations to aid them, as a victory for Mystiää could lead to Juche dominating the entire region.

    • Russia has already had a space walk you ARE NOT the first
    • When did Russia do this exactly? I looked at the Russian post for 1965 and didn't see any mention of a space walk. The first space walk was in 1965 and if Russia did this before 1965 then your breaking the rules. Anyway I suspect you did it before 1965 then, meaning that it would be voided as your doing it before it happened in OTL, meaning that Nippon was first.
      • EDIT: Yeah I looked you did it in 1964, a year earlier than it happened in OTL meaning it gets voided and Nippon is first.

Toulouse is overrun by the People's Republic of France, officially marking the end of the old Kingdom of France. King Robert V is unfortunately captured and executed by Collectivists while attempting to escape into exile. Crown Princess Marie succeeds in escaping to the French colony in Africa, where she declares the independence of the Kingdom of Guinée. She is crowned Queen Marie I of Guinée in a lavish ceremony in Accra.

Corrected as the Fench colony is nowhere near the Niger River, and has no parts of OTL Nigeria. It is mostly on OTL Ghana and Ivory Coast.

The referedum on joining the Republic of Britain is still on hold pending a reply from the Nipponese on their intentions. The worst Hurricane on record, Hurricane Delia strikes the west coast of Wales, luckly Ireland took most of the damage. As a gesture of good will the Red Cross is sent to Ireland to help with the recovery. Plans continue to merge the Big Three alliance into one confederation of states called Pan Europa. Referendums are sent to Scandinavia and Russia on the vote.
    • Nippon rejects the idea of the Brythonic Commonwealth, Nippon demands that Brythonic Commonwealth apologize and things go back to how they were before the Brythonic Commonwealth cut ties with Nippon. Nippon demands trade concessions from the Brythonic Commonwealth too, as compensation from the Brythonic Commonwealth for nearly starting a World War, too.
    • Oh hate to break it to you but the Brythonic Commonwealth has been our name since the 50's, where have you been? Just because we hold an election and the Socialist party, NOT COLLECTIVIST, takes power for 4 years is no reason to" reject the idea of the Brythonic Commonwealth" Also you can forget any trade reparations
    • What on Earth are you talking about? The idea I was referring to was "opening a direct line to the Nipponese government in an effort to establish more positive relations to hopefully avoid a world war." Hence I then said Nippon wants things to go back to how they were before the Brythonic Commonwealth cut ties with Nippon, you know, what the commonwealth did last turn? Nippon clearly stated Nippon was shocked and appalled at the Brythonic Commonwealth's actions to cut ties with Nippon and then condemned the commonwealth for souring relations and making attempts at diplomacy much more difficult. The Brythonic Commonwealth started this whole problem after the Brythonic Commonwealth randomly decided to cut ties with Nippon. Nippon is hurt by the Brythonic Commonwealth's actions towards them and wants to be compensated in the form of trade concessions as the Brythonic Commonwealth nearly started a world war over nothing! You have much to learn about spying and strategy my friend. ~VON
    • I am sorry I misunderstood this part "Nippon rejects the idea of the Brythonic Commonwealth" I thought you were criticizing my gov't and where does spying and strategy come into play? I cut ties with you because you seemed to be on your merry way to cause World War, how is one nation breaking ties with you, threatening World War? I did not threaten you. I was afraid of a surprise attack against my allies, so I pre-emptively responded. I apologize for the confusion. We will pay trade reparations as a gesture of good faith.

The Russian Government works some more on the "Samoderzhavets" initiative. Work is done to perfect the Proton Rocket design, and work is done to make a prototype Lunar Lander from The Successful Luna-9 models that are one of the only vehicles to successfully land on an extraterrestrial surface. Adjustments are done to The Probes to take into account Humans and their need for space. A newer, more spacious module is made and a proton Rocket is modified to successfully send a man and a lander to the moon. Meanwhile, The Soyuz (Unity, Union, or other variations thereof in Danish or Welsh are acceptable for the name in the respective programmes) programme has a head start as the prototype module is launched into orbit, Later, Using advanced robotics, the Sputnik-Korabl 11 and 12, tests for the docking in the Soyuz craft.

The Sikorsky 15 training jets are officially put out of service, and sold for scraps or recycled to make newer jets. Work on the Exalibur project continues, as the Russians launch five newly designed "Sablya" probes, that are meant to imitate meteor strikes, officially to examine the possible explanations to the Tunguska event, many of the scientific community believe to be caused by an asteroid strike making an aerial burst, and examine if an object can strike the earth in such a way not to produce a crater. (Don't say this didn't happen, because it is an external event, probably an asteroid hitting the earth! there is nothing anyone could have done to affect that as we can not control space!). The Sablya satellites, however have another, more secret purpose, only known to the top-ranked officials in Russia, and even then only on a need-to-know basis including the late Korolev, making the amount of people who know 8, excluding the Royal family, and the secret is not revealed on paper, and only in confidential rooms verbally, as to make it harder to make it revealed through espionage. The True purpose of the Sablya probes is to act as orbital weapons platforms, and the tests were really to test their accuracy when deployed from orbit, and how much a pure-impact from space would make, and one of the probes had a large-yield vacuum bomb, s to test the aerial burst theory and was actually to test if it is possible an asteroid caused Tunguska as its primary purpose. all Sablya probes landed within 1-2.25 km of their goals after orbit, proving it possible to launch directed weapons from satellites in orbit. It is published in all scientific journals that Tests with the Areal burst bomb prove inconclusive as it was detonated way to high to provide any reasonable data or effects to prove any theory, although the possibility is much more supported now that a little more evidence is brought forth. The no-bomb satellites failed to explode on their own, or did so during early stages of re-entry, proving that some external events were needed to initiate the areal burst that theoretically might have caused Tunguska. The Russian military builds more nuclear warheads, and nuclear ICBM subs. work on nuclear Jets begins everywhere. Russia has over 15 000 nuclear warheads, and 20 000 nukes. Work on the Ostankino Tower in Moscow begins.
  • Whoa whoa whoa, my Venera 1 landed on another planet way before your Luna 9 so it wasn't the only thing on extraterrestrial surfaces.

  • Scandinavia (also known as screw you damn edit conflicts) lands three men on the moon, a Dane, a Russian and a Welshman. Another Dane stays in the orbital craft. Yuri Gagarin rips the Nipponese flagpole out of the ground as soon as the three men step out onto the moon and shreds the flag into pieces. They play golf and build a model rocket on the moon, leaving it there. When the crew of the Artemis 11 landed on Earth, they told the ESAA that the Nipponese passed the Europeans on the 12th of January. Research showed that a Toshiba device planted by Nippon inside the Saturn V rocket. This slowed down the European travel to the moon, allowing Nippon to pass the Europeans and win. The world is shocked by this. Danish cosmonaut Frederick Holstien declares that Europe will go to Mars first, build the European Space Station to orbit the Earth and the Moon! Meanwhile, Denmark declares war on Hanover to get Schlewsig and Holstein.
    • Nippon condemns the imperialistic invasion of Hanover, and Nippon calls on the SDL and all other nations in the world to intervene and protect Hanover from the Scandinavian imperialists! The far superior INN moves in to destroy the Scandinavian navy who are bombarding the Hanoverian coastline, and Nippon lands troops in Hanover to join up with the Hanoverian army to repel the Scandinavian invaders.
    • They are the Sovereignty Defense League. The Scandinavians are just taking part of their territory, that was added to Hanover after the main nation was formed. As long as that is all they are taking, and they aren't going to turn it into a puppet state, the SDL wouldn't get involved.
    • Bharat is appalled that one of the members of the SDL would do such a hypocritical action to the organization they are part of. They pledge full support behind Nippon and demad that the Scandinavians stop immediately.
    • You guys are being ridiculous. I am taking what is mine, where my actual ruling house comes from. And Von, I thought I had Wonderlaand and the FA behind me. What happened? Also this is a land invasion in case ya haven't noticed cause the two nations have a land border. My army is the world's first or second strongest and my navy is number five. I am not going to conquer all of Hanover. I am going to conquer the area that is predominantly Nordic. Also Von, good luck with that. I am in the SDL. I was going to take Schleswig and Holstein, and leave the rest of Hanover alone.
    • Scandinavia asks the rest of the SDL to aid Scandinavia since the Asians are senselessly attacking.
    • The Russian Northern Fleet blockades the northeast passage and comes into conflict with any ships trying to cross flying the Nipponese or Bahrai flag, unless of course they are put through a thourough search, were anything can be conficated, and no military ships other than Russian are permited, and use of deadly force is authorized to those that do not comply. And the Russian emperor is Duke of Holstein Gottorp (Peter III)? In any case, The Russians support Scandinavia in their invasion of Hanover, and combats Nipponese and Bahrati forces. Russia threatens to break diplomatic ties with Nippon and Bahrat if they do not cease military action against sandinavia.
  • China expands its military, including its nuclear arsenal. Following a delayed release, Night of the Living Dead is released. Though it is highly popular among horror critics, film critics and other, more reserved people, expressed contempt over the very graphic (for its time) nature of the film. It also expands its colony 63,000 km eastward.
  • Dongfang expands by 45,000 sq km in New Mexico and Arizona this year.
  • Finland continues to build up its military, build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Empress Orvokki Komeiji makes a visit to Bhārat.

In the Region of Kōshi, all the anger against the new law and male Shogun dies out, but most of the Kōshis still hold to their opinion, but they don't show it in public no more. However, the Kōshis and Kazamis begin to dislike the tensions between Europe and Asia, and senses a 'massive thunderstorm' on the horizon. Soon, Jorma Aimoto makes another film, this time anti-war film; it is called 1000 Yöt (1000 nights); it has famous villain Alice Margatroid featuring Sirkku go on a trip together and soon cause many events that turns the tensions between Europe and Asia against them, and soon causes the collapse of many large nations being torn to shreds and many new nations being formed; and in the end all neutral nations, along with Hungary, manage to survive and remain intact. It makes a hit in both the Region of Kazami and the Region of Kōshi.

1970

Principia Moderni Map 1970
Principia Moderni Map 1970 Key
Armanism continues to expand through Central Europe. The first major Arman temple is constructed in Magdeburg, which is chosen as the religion's headquarters.

In the spirit of Armanism, a new religion takes form in Eastern Europe, worshiping the ancient Slavic god Chernobog. Temples to Chernobog pop up from Warsaw to Moscow, as there is a renewed interest in ancient Slavic culture.

In Byzantium and Scandinavia the Ancient Greek and Norse pantheons see renewed interest and new worshippers after centuries of Christian domination.

Intelligence is leaked revealing that it was not the Nipponese government to attach the Toshiba device to the Russian rocket, but in fact an ultra-nationalist, anti-Nipponese Russian group, hoping the loss of the record could make Russia go to war with Nippon.

  • The Russian space programme manages to perfect the Proton rocket, and Launch the World's first orbital research station: Salute. Meanwhile, the Samoderzhavets class of aircraft carriers are finally commisioned, and the HIHS Samoderzhavets goes to help the Danes while the HIHS Fleet Admiral of Russia Korolev is deployed to the Black Sea fleet.

No, that is before it was done in OTL, the first space station was Salyut 1 which was in 1971.

  • With the Hanover War over, Denmark annexes as much of Schleswig Holstein as possible. Artemis 13 is launched. The Ares program starts, to get to Mars. Two moons of Mars are discovered and they are named Deimos and Phobos. With the launch of the Salyut station, Scandinavia launches the European Space Station (Europa Space Station, ESS). The midterm elections are held and the Nationalists retain the majority they had since 1916, after the Conservative failure in the Berlin-Denmark War. The old PM, term limited out of office, is replaced by Former President of Sweden Michael Skirovsky. He and the President (of Scandinavia) announce that the Nordic and Scandinavian people of the world are united now, and that Scandinavia has finished the Noble Goal. This means that neither Denmark, Norway, or Sweden will expand into Europe any further unless by cession by other countries. Then he gives what later becomes known as the Greatest Speech Ever in his first State of the Union address. (This is Charlie Chaplin's OTL speech from the end of the Great Dictator, although slightly altered.)
    • You lost the war.
    • Oh. I see the algorithm has been altered.
    • Actually, it was altered before I posted this, I had just failed to see it before editing here, Sorry.
    • Oh. It's okay. I'm just glad this is over.
    • Actually, by the current algorithm, you don't have a large enough lead to annex all of that.
    • OK then. Can I take one, Schleswig?
    • Just say you took as much of their territory as you could.
    • OK then.
  • Austria: Austrian scientist along with Czech Scientist continue to work on Space Tech and Digital tech, more work goes on the Satellite that's being built. A merger proposal is sent to Bavaria for Merge between the Countries to protect each other and cultural mutualism (If I need an algorithm for this I can make it just want to merge with Bavaria). The Chancellor of Austria sends a declartion of war to the Imperial Diet. War Vote: Yea[64] Nay[36]. Austria declares war on the Asian aggressors as it honors its pact with Europe and sends thousands of Support Artillery, Tanks, Trucks, Troop supplies and Repair for Automobiles to all European nations that are at war. Military, Infrastructure and Tech is updated.
    • Who specifically are you going to war with?
    • He's aiding me against Hanover.
    • ^, And if the upcoming conflict is coming, I'm on the European side also.-Althistoryman11

  • Finland continues to build up its military, build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Empress Orvokki Komeiji decides to remain in Bhārat for a while, and even goes to a Hindu Temple with the Bhāratis. Sonja Komeiji watches over Finland for now; and she personally also scolds Nipponese government for their senseless aggression, and also scolds the increased Europe-Asia tensions as being immature; however she says this in her own palace and the public (nor anyone else) never heard what she said (except Kyllikki Komeiji). Kyllikki Komeiji is shocked and is surprised to see her scold her own ally for once. Sonja Komeiji says that it was time to speak out against her own Eastern friend, as these tensions and the possible 'Asia-Europe' war are pointless and is sad to see that no one can get along any-more. Shogun Yuyuko Kekkonen improves the economy and maintains the neutrality and peace in the nation. The Toyohokkäi 101 continues to be built. The huge motorway system continues being built in Finland, along with liikennevalot. Animation films and Anime and Manga are continued to be made too. Satomi Karjalainen's Satoyori (さとより) Company continues to making/building kurumás and military equipment (tanks, weapons, etc.) while Ayumi Rahikkala's Tōhōnokia continues to making phones. Meanwhile, Liitto Kansainvälisen Auto/Kokusai Jidōsha Renmei (国際自動車連盟) hosts the twelveth season of Kaava Yksi in Finland, Saigyō, Nippon, Bhārat, Eesti Vabariik, and Shuubudan and this season sees a Saigyō driver winning. The VR Group with help from Nippon, continues the Onozuka project. Utsuho Reiuji, Soilikki Mikkola, Yuyuko Saigyouji and Youmu Konpaku continue to gain more popular each day; soon a fan manga, titled Perhonen, has Yuyuko Saigyouji visit a few nations to spread the butterflies around, to bring peace and harmony to all. Another fan manga has both Soilikki Mikkola and Yuyuko Saigyouji going around and peacefully solving the diplomatic relations of European and Asian nations alike and eventually bring the people together for eternal peace worldwide. The Yakuzas host for more illegal street racing, which soon causes problems for traffic and the police. Meanwhile in Eesti Vabariik, more roads and motorways are built and infrastructure is improved. Prime Minister Lüüdia Kask improves the economy bit more.
  • Democratic People's Republic of Mystiää continues to build up military and improve infrastructure, and continues industrialisation.

  • Imperial Confederation of Saigyō continues building infrastructure and continues industrialisation and continues building up military. More roads, motorways, railways, harbours are built and in the Region of Kōshi more Shinto shrines are also built. New animation films continue to be showed in the Safaia Elokuva theatre and more are created. Meanwhile, Sirkku continues to be more popular then Sanae Kochiya, Minoriko Aki and Alice Margatroid. In the Region of Kōshi, a few Kōshis compare the Nipponese Government to Sirkku, as well as scolding the Nipponese government for their pointless aggression. One Kazami even draws the Nipponese Prime Minister as having Sirkku's ice wings and dress. Some Kōshis hope that the Nipponese citizens could stand up against their reckless government's actions and have peace for their nation too. An anti-war, anti-rival poster in Kazami has Alice Margatroid looking all evil and scary looking, and has strings attached to Europe and Asia with the caption 'Onko tämä pieni peli tulee olemaan loppu kaikille?' (Is this little game going to be the end for all?). In contrast to this many people in Sunda and Brunei, as well as some people in Koshi and Kazami support Nippon in the fact that they are protecting Hanover from the aggressive expansionism of the Scandinavians. They start spreading the message around the confederacy to support Hanover from loosing considerable amounts of territory from the expansionist Scandinavians. As such a vote takes place on whether to get involved in the war, and after a long debate, the confederacy votes to send supplies to help Hanover from losing about half of its territory to Scandinavia.
  • People's Republic of Käwäshiro heavily builds up military, continues industrialisation, building infrastructure. President Janika Erkkilä has more military equipment built, and continues to improve the economy; and reopens her borders again. Premier Mauno Miyako continues his Kulttuurivallankumous plan throughout the nation. Soon, President Janika Erkkilä asks Scandinavia for an alliance and offers to help them on their side when needed.
    • Scandinavia agrees to an alliance. Scandinavia will also help Kawashiro in wars, but if it thing Kawshiro is wrong it will not aid the nation.
  • The Brythonic Commonwealth continues expanding the military and industry. Defenses are still being laid out in case of invasion. Orange sells the Orange OS X II to all computer manufacturers that it designates (So far only Finland, Denmark, Italy, and Russia get this) The Personal Computer gains more popularity and the first ever X86 chip is born. This marks the begining of the new PC era. The 007 franchise plans to release the movie Diamond on Mars (OTL Moonraker but better) later this year. A new production company called Everest (OTL Paramount) is founded and shoots the film Lost At Sea, an adventure about a poor farm boy who gets stranded on the infamous Flying Dutchman. Jazz becomes even more popular and a new form of rock called Be Bop is formed. Famous hits like Sha Boom and Lolipop are also created at this time. Street racing becomes a large pastime for the teenagers of the Commonwealth, who despite government and societal rules, are embracing the heavily Nipponese culture behind it.
  • Australia continues to industrialize. The infrastructure is being upgraded all around the country.
  • Czechland's military prepares for warfare upon hearing that the Asians are ready to strike Europe. 150,000 soldiers are pulled out of the reserves, ready to be armed at borders, where there may be any threats. Continues technology work with Austria.
  • Byzantium: the Nation asks Brythonic Support to initiate a Space agency. The military prepares for the conflict seeing that the war is coming upon Eurasia and the entire army (about 75,000 man) Prepare troops to remain at the frontiers in case of any assault in Byzantine territories, the Neo-pagan movements are accepted in this new nation and the Byzantium only states that until a conflict appears between Christian and neo-pagans there will be no objection to this new religion. In the Byzantium the cities prepares for war and the leadership (Republic, kingdom or empire?) evacuation process are being developed in case of An invasion to the cities or bombarding (I am Turkey and Greece right?) and alliance is offered to Austria, Hungary and Russia.
  • Dravidia votes to abolish the Dravidian monarchy and become a republic, severing ties with Bharat. They announce that they are appalled at Bharat's consistent support for Onguayal's evil actions, and they no longer wish to be affliatted with the most aggressive and expansionist regime on the planet. They announce that they will join the Sovereignty Defense League, and they build up their military in order to make such a commitment real. Dravidia builds up their military, wary of potential war. The parliament tells Bharat that anti-conquest and anti-Onguayali sentiment is high in Dravidia, and they don't want to sever relations with Bharat. They send supplies to help Hanover.
    • Bharat did withdraw support after Dravidia requested Bharat not to support Onguayal. So Bharat asks if Dravidia could please reconsider.
    • The Algorithm wasn't altered for the vassals of Bharat, so I thought that it was still helping them. I've retconned the split in that case.
    • Ok. :) BTW Dravidia goes to the moon this year!
  • Kongo expands as far south as they can towards the former Russian colony. They send supplies to help Hanover. As their constitution states that their king is the king of Dravidia, and Dravidia is kingless, they become a republic.
  • Italy condemns the Russian destruction of the Nipponese landing site as being a childish action. Italy boycotts goods coming from the Russian Commonwealth in protest of this ridiculous behavior. That really is childish of you Lx and Scrawland. I'm tempted to have Italy and a bunch of the rest of my nations join the Asian side because of this. Also, you cannot control the government of other nations, which saying that another nations sabatoged yours is.
  • Excuse me, our posts are the same exact thing when it comes to space nation. I only wrote that because Lx wrote that. ~ Scraw
  • Hey, Russia only ripped the flagpole off the ground... and a proclamation that the Russian emperor has sovreignty of the moon, made by the Cosmonauts... knowing very well that it would be considered bogus, even perhaps by the emperor himself.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces more Ennetsu grade nuclear bombs - most of the new bombs being Ennetsu V2 class. The motorway network continues to be built and the Shinkansen project continues too, as travelling around Nippon continues to get easier. Nippon's space programme sends a new team of astronauts to the moon to replace all of the European flags with Nipponese ones, the other Asian flags are left alone. Nippon claims sovereignty over most of the moon as they were first and are willing to negotiate dividing the moon up between the world space fairing nations, but after witnessing the childish actions of destroying Nipponese flags on the moon by Russia and Scandinavia, Nippon excludes the two nations from the talks dividing the moon between the space going nations of the world. The world's first Jumbo Jet goes into service with Onozuka Airways. Toshiba invents the floppy disk and the daisy-wheel printer too. Toshiba also hosts the world's first computer chess tournament, with the Toshiba computers easily winning the competition. Nippon sends more troops to Hanover easily destroying the Russian blockade with the superior INN forces, and thanks to the influx of hundreds of thousands of soldiers to support Hanover, the invading Scandinavians are easily pushed back. Nippon establishes military bases in Hanover as part of the plan to protect Hanover from further attacks from Scandinavia.
  • Mmm hmm. You just look at the algorithm and forget about your "pushing us back."
  • Also, I just copied what Lx said about his astronauts. Don't blame a single thing on Scandinavia. And this show of revenge is equally childish compared to Lx's destruction of your flag. Also Russia claimed sovereignty over the moon first.
    • In response to Nippon's childish actions (you actually told your astronauts to do it, ours did it out of their own free will) Scandinavia sends the Artemis 14 crew to take every single man made object off of the moon, European property included, and astronaut Oscar Grek states no nation should ever have any rights over the moon and that it should be a spectacle in the heavens for all of humanity to enjoy.


    • The Bharatis will become furious if any of their or Chinese things are touched.
    • Read what I said again. Especially this part: "no nation should ever have any rights over the moon and that it should be a spectacle in the heavens for all of humanity to enjoy."
    • Bharat's populace grow crazy. They state that the flags and the picture was testimony to hardwork. No nation deserves the right to do what they think is right to another nation's symbols and property, and all this is happening because two nations do not want to get along. They go back to the moon (In Narayan 13) and put all those things back on the moon, along with a Dravidian and Afghani flag (as well as the UKH's flag).
    • This is really starting to get frustrating. I was trying to make peace. Are you seriously going to keep going back and forth with us? Dude, this is the 1960s! Peace and prosperity! The Cold War was a war of words, not a war of weapons. And I think Bharat's government and populace in general does not understand plausibility.
    • Lx, whose space programme is also yours since they are a single project, says that: "They film themselves ripping the Nipponese flag off the ground, and replacing it with a declaration on the surface of the moon, stating that the Russian Emperor's title now includes "Supreme Lord of Luna" (Verkhovniy Gosudar Luniy"." Having the Russian emperor gain the title of Supreme Lord of Luna is a clear indication that the government told them to do it and they are reaping the benefits. They also choose to air the footage rather than not to show the footage and condemn their astronauts for that sort of behaviour. No apology was given either from the supposedly ignorant government who are trying to stop a war, and then they go and do it again! Then you claim it isn't your fault because LX did it, well if you feel so strongly about it, why didn't you not copy it and say you don't support that sort of behaviour? No, you just went along with it, an accessory to Nipponese flag murder if you will. Also if you disagree with it so much, why did you make up some crap about Nippon sabotaging your rocket too? Also if you want to talk plausibility, how has Denmark not fallen into a huge depression after all this overspending on its military, nuclear weapons and space programme? The likes of China, Russia, Nippon and Bharat have large enough populations, economies and natural resources to be able to facilitate this sort of stuff; Scandinavia clearly does not, let alone Wales ~Von
      • ​Hey hey hey...who aired the footage...WHO aired the footage... I wrote nothing about it getting aired in Russia...at all. Stop Spreading Lies and The Space program has speding from Russia, and Russian resources are used for the construction of Rockets...and we have one economic zone between Wales, Denmark and Russia..so basicaly Russia is preventing them form being destroyed.
      • You film a lunar landing and decide not to show it to people? Okay, makes sense. So if no one knew, then why did you do it? Why post about it at all? Your argument still doesn't answer the fundamental question of why you did it.
    • Whoa Whoa Whoa, Wales has not directly built anything for space in several turns. Also Wales is a Russian Commonwealth nation, their wealth is our wealth. Lately we've been cutting back. Did you not see the post were the government changed because of the slowing economy?
    • 'I don't know, why don't you ask Lx about the whole flag stuff. Also it's either I copy it or not mention it at all. Also Wales is in the Russian commonwealth and Russia and Scandinavia are in political union. My population is well over 25 million. My economy is the sixth in the world. And the rest of your statement, this part: "No apology was given either from the supposedly ignorant government who are trying to stop a war, and then they go and do it again!" I fail to understand. Which government are you talking about? And in case you haven't noticed, I have made several reconciliatory attempts in the last couple years but you and your pal Bharat have refused these and continued on with your imperialist ways. Also I have recently done next to nothing in regards to military buildup, as a matter of fact that's what Wales has been doing.'
    • You claim your astronauts did it of their own free will, so why didn't they get punished for something so offensive by your government? Why did your government not apologize for the rash actions of their astronauts? Why did you just do it again? ~Von
    • In case you haven't noticed, YOU DID IT TOO. We did it again, but again, in case you haven't noticed, WE GOT RID OF OUR STUFF TOO. Why? In the name of world cooperation, saying that no government has control over any celestial body and that they are miracles of god for all of humanity to enjoy. And why should they get punished? It's not a crime.
    • Still doesn't explain why you just didn't apologize in the first place. Please answer my question. I mean what did you think was going to happen after you do something like that?
    • First and foremost, why the hell don't you ask Lx? And also, I just realized no one would have known about this since it was not televised, you would only find out in your next landing.
    • Would you Please STOP! IT IS GETTING VERY ANNOYING. oh god I am really REALLY regreting putting that moon flag thing up in the first place right now. In my original post, Russia only ripped the flag off the ground and replacing it with a piece of paper...and only expected for Nippon to Say "No, we own the moon" and it being a little-mentioned part of the larger cold war...not THIS!!! This is not what the game page is for ... this block of text should not be here in the first place.
  • Chamoru amp up the military and the nation sends troops to support Hanover too.
  • The Federation of the Americas begins work to join together the various militaries of the states which make up the federation. Infrastructure continues to be joined together too. The federation begins trying to get more nations to join the new superstate, especially the Caribbean Federation and Onguayal. The Federation of the Americas regrettably informs Scandinavia that they will no longer be able to support them invading Hanover as federation military might is needed to protect the federation from a threat much closer to home. The federation pours troops (nearly the whole army) onto the Onguayal border and the federation issues Onguayal an ultimatum: give up your war warmongering ways and join the federation of the Americas to pursue a democratic expansion of ideals, or face the might of the federation's military enforcing this change upon you.
    • Scandinavia (Denmark and Sweden specifically) offer the Fed aid against Onguayal if it can aid against the Asians in Hanover.
  • The Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha amp up their military and send military aid to help Hanover. The commonwealth's nuclear scientists continue looking to the long term effects of the nuclear bombs tested at the Commonwealth facilities, and initial results don't look good. Nagin Airship corp.'s supersonic airliner Conkrua has its first supersonic test flight this year too.
    • C'mon, I wanted to do that! :D
  • Wonderlaand amps up its military and continues to support Scandinavia on retaking Schleswig and Holstein from Hanover and sends more military aid. They do however voice concern about the Asian nations, especially Nippon, becoming angry with Wonderlaand and a new neutrality-loving political party (the nationell frihetlig neutralitet parti/national libertarian neutrality party/NFN) starts to gain popularity as they see no gain from supporting Scandinavia, just loss of Nipponese trade. The anti-Danish nationalists, who just see Scandinavia as a Danish puppet also say Wonderlaander intervention in the war is pointless as it just props up the Scandinavian/Danish regime and loses Wonderlaand valuable trade, while helping Denmark oppress more people. The anti-Danish nationalists are largely ignored though, but the NFN start to become more popular as many Wonderlaanders are tired of war, especially seeing how the last one nearly destroyed the nation.
  • Mauritius amps up their military and after being pressured by Nippon, Mauritius sends military aid to help Hanover.
  • Bharat enters a dynastic union with Finland as the Maharaja died last year. It is a sad occurence, but also a joyous one for the new Maharaja. One of his first actions is to learn how to speak Finnish more fluently, as his current skills are rusty. One of his first "serious" actions is to pay Dravidia a visit to see the condition of the state and calm its people down. The Maharaja himself has grown weary of the UOS, and thinks about ejecting them from the space program and cutting all aid. After his visit to Dravidia, he pays a visit to Onguayal. B.A.S.A continues sending communications satellites to help communicate signals faster. More missions to the moon are launched, four in fact (Narayan 10, Narayan 11, Narayan 12, and Nayaran 13), and all land successfully. Many of them had either a Dravidians or an Afghan serving with a Chinese and Bharati crewmember. Bharat enters the division of the moon talks with Nippon, and they are also appalled at Europe's actions, stating that "heroes do not act like they did". Meanwhile, the government funds more money into its army, and this helps to manufacture advanced tanks and give the army more more modern guns and artillery. Bharat builds more battleships, followed by creating more aircraft carriers. Bharat also churns out more of its own nuclear suberines with ICBMs. HP Computers make more progress this year and HP computers continue to make good progress on CGI technology as well. Star Trek: Enterprise runs successfully, and begins the "Earth-Romulan War arc", having run successfully for seven years. Its producers announce that they will look to end the hugely popular show in a few years. The BBC continues to cover all the launches into space, and documents the landing on the moon. The Times continues to spread, and expands services. Tata's Air corps' gunships and transport helicopters continue production. The Manhav Desai F-4 Bhoot continues to be produced and more of the F-4's get delivered to the air force. More are ordered as wars seem on the horizon. The Nuclear Agency watches over the stockpiling of nuclear bombs. ICBMs continue to be produced in large numbers with atomic warheads. Bharat also withdraws any support it had for the UOS. Bharat is also very shocked about what happened on the Russian rocket and how the European nations tried to cover it up.
    • For you to own the moon would mean that you would first have to find some way to sustain life on the moon, keep people there, and then you could claim sovereignty over parts of the moon. That won't happen until the late 2000s (decade), and only if you drop everything else regarding space and focus on that. If these are just claims like "Hi, I'm the Emperor and I own the moon," they will be largely ignored by the globe. And even so, other nations (cough Russia cough cough) already placed claims on it, so good luck with anything regarding lunar sovereignty.
    • When did I state we were going to "own" the moon? And Nippon said it in their turn, I am only confirming Bharat will be there.
    • Also this whole European covering it up business, you obviously don't understand what the mod event said. It was an anti-Nipponese group in Russia, That group framed Nippon for the crime, but further research showed who was the real perpetrator. There was no "cover up" as you may like to believe.
  • Bengal's Apartheid continues and the military is amped up. The colony in South Africa is expanded by 48,800 km in every direction. Meanwhile, its small enclave in Bharat is finally allowed to join up with the rest of Bharat. They ask if Bharat agrees to this.
    • Bharat happily agrees.
  • Afghanistan's army continues training hard in war games. The country also amps up for an invasion and lets its returning troops rest.
  • The UOS work on their army and begin to control the amount of trees being chopped down to preserve wildlife. Onguayal expands 45,000 km. The UOS retreat from Tsalgi, even though they won a symbolic victory. The country's people grow tired and annoyed as its government continues wars. After a visit by the Bharati Maharaja, it seems the government might have finally been straightened out, and during elections this year, the new party which comes to power opens negotiations with the Federation about joining. They finally decide on joining, and the UOS, along with Andalucia will join. This seems to be the end of a very turbulent era of Onguayali history.
  • Sindu expands 54,350 km and extra land for farming continues helping expand the country, through the movements. Many more hectares of farmland are created this year, along with rivers in the colony.

1972

Imuhagh Republic

Imuhagh Republic

The northwestern part of the Bharati west African nation declares independence as the Imuhagh Republic

The Vietnamese South American colony declares independence from Vietnam as the Empire of Gaiana.

Russia does not own Mongolia to my knowledge...something that is not part of a nation cannot declare independence.(although I could be wrong...just I don't think Russia owns enough of Mongolia for it to be sizable in population or area).

They sort of own the northern half, with China having the southern parts. It certainly is a stretched-out and skinny nation.
In OTL China still owns a large portion of Mongolia...Outer Mongolia...OTL Mongolia is just the old chinese province of Inner Mongolia...and the part Russia owns is virtualy uninhabited...way not enough to be substantial, but OK...I would like to see a map, though...just to know what I might me losing.
It is sort of implausible. Perhaps you could have some other small part of Russia break away? Like Evenkia, that was once independent? If you do that, I'll remove the Mongolian event.
Along those lines, Manchuria is part of OTL China. Why would they leave China in this timeline?
There is a Manchurian ethnic group. They declare independence to preserve their culture - which is effectively being killed in OTL. I can easily change it so that they declare independence from China.
PM's China isn't a culturally repressive action. Besides, didn't Lurker say China didn't need to lose any more territory?
I agree. Yank, micronationalism doesn't mean every nation is totally torn apart. You seem especially concentrating on China. It's unfair for them to have every minority break away, and very unfair to have them have two revolts in one year for no reason. China already lost Nepal, Mughalistan, and Tibet and Turkestan. Can't we have another nation get hit?
Did you not read me also bringing my attention to Hungary?
China already has lost enough territory. I already stated that they were not going to lose any more. They already have lost plenty of territory. Target someone else.
I had already spent time targeting Hungary. China would still be huge even without that territory.
  • All the nations who accepted League invitations in the previous years are invited to the signing of the International League charter (OTL UN charter) as well as Nippon and China. Scandinavia begins a build up of the military. Troops are withdrawn from Hanover. Construction begins on a headquarters building for the League in Copenhagen. Finland is invited to be a permanent observer state if it wishes not to join. It is asked of Sunda to place the International Court of Human Rights under League control as it is fitting for "an International Court to be possessed by an international union," in the words of the Acting Secretary General Trygve Kien. Kien/Scandinavia asks Russia, China and Bharat to leave Manchuria, Mongolia and Imuhagh alone and asks the rest of the Permanent Security Council to support this.
    • Shogun Yuyuko Kekkonen of Finland agrees for an observer state status.
    • The International Court of Human rights is already an international body. Their headquarters just happen to be in Sunda (which is now part of Saigyo). The ICHR is neutral towards all countries (including Saigyo), maintains a judicial split from any other form of government and to keep impartiality, the ICHR refuses to be taken over by the league.
    • You obviously don't get it. The ICHR seems to have misinterpreted the intentions of the IL. No one is "taking over" anyone else. The League is not biased towards anyone, so saying that joining the League is giving up impartiality is at best a lie.
    • Either way, the ICHR thinks it would be better for them to remain neutral and non-aligned with anyone or thing.
  • The Brythonic Commonwealth expands industry and infrastructure. Aid is sent to Copenhagen to help construct the league building. The military is bumped down the readiness level to yellow, from its previous state orange. Orange computers expands its computer market with the Orange OS X II Mercury. Mercury is provides an advance, yet east to use GUI interface (sorta OTL Early Mac interface). The new Naval II PC is released with an Orange A2 X86 processor with 16 MHz of power, making it the most powerful processor to date. A new company called Maxwell releases a prototype "graphic processor". This first GPU is able render very well and is shipped with the Naval II. Orange also releases the Crave LS 1 supercomputer to be purchasable on the business/government market. Sanctions are levied on Collectivist nations by the General Assembly. Ambassador to the International Security Council, James Chamberlain asks the Secretary General to enact anti-Collectivist legislation internationally. Building of prototype lasers, the government begins experimenting with advanced laser technology. CGI is used in the new movie Attack of the Space Bees a ridiculous animated film that is fun for the whole family. Work continues on the 007 franchise.
    • Nippon agrees with the Brythonic Commonwealth's stance and they place sanctions on Collectivist France.
    • HP Computers and Tech asks is the Commonwealth would like its help in CGI technology as they have worked long and hard to make it as good it is in Star Trek: Enterprise.
    • DreamTheatre, Orange and Everest all agree to the aid in CGI technology, they thank HP for the offer.
    • The Commonwealth also asks permission to set up an Orange Computers store and factories in Bharat, of course you are allowed a share in profits.
    • HP is fine with it. They would, however, like HP to give priority for CGI animation next time as they do reckon they are the best in the world. Bharat also allows Orange computers into the country gladly, hoping it will increase international trade.

The so-called "heir to the French throne" living in Nippon, turns out to be a big fat phoney, so Nippon launches an exhibition into Western Africa to visit the former Crown Princess, who is the Queen of a former French colony in Africa. Nippon proposes to her to give support to a war overthrowing the collectivist regime and have France become a constitutional monarchy once again. The former Crown princess will become the new queen of France, and her current African kingdom can become a vassal state of France. With the promise of restoring her family's monarchy, saving France and gaining more power, the former Crown Princess accepts.

    • OK.
    • You would think that Alsatia would promote the Alsatian language, not Franconian.

A group of Scandinavians scale Mount Everest (in Bharat, yes) and are the first to do so. (I believe no one else has done this.) The Godthab radio mast is completed in Greenland and it is the second tallest man-made structure in the world. Meanwhile, the government continues to build up the military and invite other nations to the International League and hopes it will not fail again. The Red Claw strikes again by attacking a ScanTrak train going from Oslo to Helsinki. Half of the people on the train manage to escape. The rest of them are taken hostage by the group and they demand a ransom from the authority of ScanTrak, to which they respond by paying half the due amount. The Red Claw begins making daily attacks on ScanTrak trains and the government begins to fret over the situation. Fewer Red Claw members are rounded up. ScanTrak employees begin to go on strike due to the dangerous situations at their workplaces and ScanTrak's ridership levels begin to drop. The Norway-Sweden border is a special hotspot and people in that area begin to move to more metropolitan areas. ScanTrak's gross income also begins to go down and the economists begin to predict an economic slump by the next year and a European depression by 1977 or a global depression. The Red Claw would strike again before the years end by blowing up a subway tunnel underneath Copenhagen's First Avenue, killing 23 underground and ten above ground, as well as burying a train in rubble.

Infrastructure continues to be joined together and the federation asks any other American nations, namely Dongfang. Infrastructure is also built, and the problem of slightly different sizes of train tracks are sorted out by many miles of tracks being removed and replaced to make transportation much easier.

It is reveled to the public in an official IKB report that upon further investigation on the Rocket sabotage of 1969 that the Ultranationalist Organization in Russia that was responsible was in fact a cell of the early Red Claw in Russia (although its beliefs are more Fascist than Collectivist).

    • Star Wars was released in 1977.
    • I know. I just want to do it a bit earlier.
    • I thought the rule was 'major achievements must happen at the same time as in OTL'.
    • Meh, it's just a film, so I think it can slide.
    • Fine. If possible, let's stick to the OTL formula as much as we can.
    • The rule is major inventions must happen the same time as OTL.
    • It's a film. A film. No one "invented" it. You don't "invent" a film.
  • Dongfang expands in Nevada/Utah by 45000 sq km.
  • Alsatia sends labourers to Welsh ports in Cornwall to make ships. The ships made are filled with troops and sent to (what is that country in West Africa right under the Hungarian colony?) and war is declared.
    • Alsatia can't declare war on a nation they don't border when they are landlocked. Also, no new colonies can be created at this time, so attacking any African nations is pointless.
  • Byzantium: The military is still being worked on and the army prepares for any conflict. The political center in Constantinople continues as the center of the state but the king decides into making the nation into a more democratic union between the people and the aristocracy (someone highlight Byzantium in the map. . have been here for seven years and nothing happened with me in the map)

You need to start spelling Byzantium correctly and using proper capitalization. The map is only updated once every five years.

  • Iraq continues with the excavations inside the country, with lost sites such as Babylon, Akkad, Lagash, Uruk, Ur, Seleucia, and Ctesiphon being found and examined. Small amounts of neopaganism rise in the country, particularly among Chaldeans. The government does not react to this internal event, however, the Sultan asks for an alliance with 'Wales, Russia and Scandinavia in case collectivism tries to spread to the Arab world.
  • Bharat's commercial aircraft continues to be tested and its efficiency is improved. This aircraft is being given a lot of time as it would be a thing of national pride. The aircraft can carry over 200 people and is very good. It will be released to B.O.A.C, who have bought a large number of the aircraft, next year if everything goes to plan. The Union Defense Force continues to grow and many ships are added to its ranks. B.A.S.A continues sending communications satellites to help communicate signals faster. The 4 satellites sent to Mars reach their destination and begin to transmit. They send back spectacular images and begin to search for life while the ones orbiting the planet map its terrain. New rockets are commissioned which could travel much further than the distance to the moon. Meanwhile, the first capsules for the building of the Asian Co-operation Space Station are sent up. The government begins to ciphon more funds from the army, diverting them into the space program. The profits made from selling the old equipment is pured into infrastructure projects as many new bridges are build, along with tunnels. Bharat's first metro system also begins to be constructed in the cities. These will be accompanied by tram systems in the city, all to ease congestion problems. New laws on the efficiency of cars are also passed. These are very strict, and many companies have to completely re-design their cars. However, it is all for the goodness of the environment. Many reserves are also set up for animal and plant life, as tiger numbers begin to near only 10,000, and lion numbers plummit to below 2500. Advanced tanks are still manufactured for the army, and its troops are given given hard training to keep them up to date. Bharat builds more aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines, and stealth models are tested. HP Computers make more progress this year and HP computers continue to make good progress on CGI technology as well. A new Star Trek movie continues to be made. The BBC continues to cover all the launches into space, and they are the first broadcasting corporation to use the satellites to transmit their signals. The BBC also covers the testing of the supersonic jet and document the construction projects. The Times continues to spread, and expands services. Tata's Air corps' gunships and transport helicopters continue production. The Manhav Desai F-4 Bhoot starts to be produced in less numbers but more of the F-4's get delivered to the air force. Stealth bombers are commissioned and are added to the air force. The Nuclear Agency watches over the stock-piling of nuclear bombs. More ICBMs begin to be cut down on as they are expensive and seem to be pointless.
  • Bengal's Apartheid continues and the military is amped up. The South African country names itself Dabaudajami (shortened name for Southern Buddhist Land) and proudly documents its Buddhist history. Amir Khan continues to preach his free-thinking ideology and travells around Dabaudajami preaching it.
  • Afghanistan's army continues training hard in war games. Their large aircraft prototype continues to be tested and is hailed as a brilliant success. However, it gozzles fuel at an alarming rate, so the government sets the builders a challange, make the aircraft fly a greater distance on less fuel that the Jumbo Jet and its manufacturing gets a subsidy.
  • Sindustan continues to establish influence in the area around it. They especially try to influence the Imagurh Republic. They also begin to amp up heavily and continue their man-influenced rainfall. Oil begins to be drilled this year and many companies are invited to invest. They expand 22,500 km (5000 * 3 * 1.5) into the south western grey states.

1976

Burgundy falls to collectivists. Collectivists also take control of Silesia and Slovakia. This rise of collectivism seems to have originated due to the good press collectivism is receiving due to the unprovoked Nipponese invasion of France.

Aceh, the only part of Pahang that is still Muslim, breaks away to form the Islamic Republic of Aceh.

  • Australia continues to industrialize.
  • The Brythonic Commonwealth invades Collectivist France with Nipponese forces. The 5th armoured division rushes out from Britanny, toward major industrial centres near and around Paris. Collectivist forces are rounded up and sent to Nippon. The nation is put on high alert. The economy grows some.
    • The Brythonic Commonwealth is expelled from the Sovereignty Defense League for their unprovoked attack upon France.
    • The Prime Minister states that the attack is not unprovoked, and it IS NOT for territorial gain. The Red Claw and the Collectivist government are in collusion with one another, we will restore the rightful French monarch, then we will totally leave the Frenach alone.
    • Denmark advises neutrality since both nations are stuck between a rock and a hard place.
    • Russia agrees with Danemark...we have placed the Samoderzhavets under SDL authority.
  • Finland continues to build up its military, build and improve some infrastructure and continues industrialisation. Empress Orvokki Komeiji has a large Soilikki Mikkola statue be built in her garden behind the Tsuyukusa Eastern Palace. Sonja Komeiji continues staying in Hakodate, but she also visits Sendai, Sapporo, Aomori, and Kuroishi. Shogun Yuyuko Kekkonen improves the economy and maintains the neutrality and peace in the nation. The Toyohokkäi 101 continues to be built. The huge motorway system continues being built in Finland, along with liikennevalot. Animation films and Anime and Manga are continued to be made too. Satomi Karjalainen's Satoyori (さとより) Company continues to making/building kurumás and military equipment (tanks, weapons, etc.) while Ayumi Rahikkala's Tōhōnokia continues to making phones. Meanwhile, Liitto Kansainvälisen Auto/Kokusai Jidōsha Renmei (国際自動車連盟) hosts the eighteenth season of Kaava Yksi in Finland, Saigyō, Nippon, Bhārat, Eesti Vabariik, Shuubudan, Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha and this season sees a Shuubudan driver winning. The VR Group with help from Nippon, continues the Onozuka project. Utsuho Reiuji, Soilikki Mikkola, Yuyuko Saigyouji and Youmu Konpaku continue to gain more popular each day; some more fan manga are made; and are also used in some more advertisements. The hijacked train from Scandinavia arrives in Finland, and soon stops in Kokkola. However, as they begin to get out the Yakuzas strike again. Another shoot-out occurs, and soon a Yakuza throws a Kaenbin at the train, which soon causes the train to explode and leaving no survivors except one Yakuza. Following the attack, Shogun Yuyuko Kekkonen has every major train station to be heavily secured as well. Later, a fan manga titled Juna Länteen (A Train from the West) is created and it has Youmu Konpaku who tries to investigate a mysterious train that arrived in a train station from the West, only to find that there is nothing in there and that its haunted; in the end, Youmu Konpaku manages to finally decide to destroy the old haunted train station, effectively ridding of the curses it brought. The fast food/restaurant Rin's expand to and some more are established in Bhārat, and soon a few are also established in Nippon. Meanwhile in Eesti Vabariik, more roads and motorways are built and infrastructure is improved. Prime Minister Lüüdia Kask improves the economy a bit more.
  • Democratic People's Republic of Mystiää continues to build up military and improve infrastructure, and continues industrialisation. President Ano Aaltonen continues to spread heavy pro-government propaganda in Mystiää. The borders continue to be heavily guarded, the security extremely high, and media heavily controlled.
  • Imperial Confederation of Saigyō continues building infrastructure and continues industrialisation and continues building up military. More roads, motorways, railways, harbours are built and in the Region of Kōshi more Shinto shrines are also built. Shogun Fasha Sattar improves the economy. New animation films continue to be shown in the Safaia Elokuva theatre and more are created. Sirkku, Alice Margatroid, Sanae Kochiya and Minoriko Aki continue to be popular, as they are used in some films, fan manga, appear in anime, and are used in posters. A subway system begins construction in Reiuzi, Harjavalta, Bandar Seri Begawan, and other major cities. Meanwhile, anti-communist posters featuring Sirkku and Alice Margatroid appear in the Region of Kōshi and Kazami. Having said that, soon Sirkku becomes a symbol of idiocy and Alice Margatroid the symbol of evil for a few Kōshis and Kazamis. The confederacy also votes to send supplies to help their ally Nippon, as an increased collectivist world order would mean a lot of trouble for the monarchy of the confederacy.
  • People's Republic of Käwäshiro heavily builds up military, continues industrialisation, building infrastructure. President Emma Aoyagi improves the economy. Premier Eevertti Nakamori sends supplies to the People's Republic of France to help them in the war, but he also is confused as to why any democratic nation would even aid the People's Republic of France as it doesn't make much sence for them to do so, especially if they are anti-communist themselves. Soon the Käwäshironian Cartels become more active again now with Mauno Miyako out of the picture. The Käwäshironian Underground Democratic Movement also becomes stronger too, still staying out of sight from the Käwäshironian police and government.
  • Bharat's commercial aircraft continues to be tested and its efficiency and capatiy are improved to their fullest. The aircraft is released to B.O.A.C as the Boeing B-2707, and they quickly roll it into their operations. The greatest test comes whn the aircraft is required to travel to Finland without refuelling. The B-2707 manages brilliantly, and not only that, it arrives before its take-off time (from Bharat) in Finland. It is hailed as a huge success. The Union Defense Force continues to grow and many ships are added to its ranks. B.A.S.A continues sending communications satellites to help communicate signals faster. More satellites are sent to Mars. One of these was the Italian probes. They contained Italiano I and II (OTL Viking I & II). One of them lads while the other one joins the other satellites orbiting the planet. All the satellites continue to do their job properly. New rockets are commissioned which could travel much further than the distance to the moon. Meanwhile, more capsules for the building of the Asian Co-operation Space Station are sent up. Bharat asks all the other nations from Asia to join in as well. The government begins to ciphon more funds from the army, diverting them into the space program. The new bridges are completed, while the new tunnels continue construction. Bharat's first metro system continues to be constructed along with tram systems in the city. The first stage is expected to be completed next year. Many cars are taken off the streets this year because of the new laws, but all the new cars pass the regulation by the law. After a record number of accidents this year, the seat belt is made mandatory to be worn. People caught driving without their seat belts will be heavily fined. This leads the Maharaja to declare open a new branch of police, the Traffic Corps. However, the Traffic Corps have always existed, and this only makes them recognised. The reserves begin to show that the effort to protect the animals was worth it as the numbers almost did not fall this year. Advanced tanks are still manufactured for the army, and its troops are given given hard training to keep them up to date. Bharat builds more aircraft carriers and stealth nuclear submarines. HP Computers make more progress this year and HP tech continue to make good progress on CGI technology as well. The HP joining with Orange as partners has been a huge success for both companies as their shares skyrocket. A new Star Trek is released. It is called Star Trek: First Days and its tells about the challenges faced tby the fledgling Federation. The crew of the Enterprise here have to stop a Federation-Klingon relations from spiraling out of control. The end in a cliffhanger. The BBC continues to cover all the launches into space and the use of the satellites to transmit its signals has significantly helped it. The BBC also covers the launch of the supersonic jet. The Times continues to spread, and expands services. Tata's Air corps' gunships and transport helicopters continue production. The Manhav Desai F-4 Bhoot starts to be produced in less numbers but more of the F-4's get delivered to the air force. Stealth bombers are commissioned and are added to the air force. The Nuclear Agency watches over the stock-piling of nuclear bombs. More ICBMs begin to be cut down on as they are expensive and seem to be pointless.
  • Bengal's Apartheid continues and the military is amped up. Dabaudajami experiences Amir Khan's free-thinking ideology and although mainly the Muslims convert, it also has an impact on the Buddhists, who are moved by it and declare themselves "free-thinking". Looking at his success in Dabaudajami, Amir Khan heads to Bengal to preach his free-thinking ideology. It seems like it might become very effective in Bengal.
  • Afghanistan's army continues training hard in war games. Their large aircraft prototype continues to be tested and its fuel problem is fixed. So the aircraft now flies at a longer distance with less fuel used up in the process. This is because of the better fuselage and engines. The government keeps its promise and its manufacturing gets a subsidy. B.O.A.C quickly snap up the offer to buy these, and the aircraft quickly manage to rival the Jumbo Jet very successfully indeed.
  • Sindustan continues to establish influence in the area around it. They finally manage to vassalize the Imugarh Republic. They also continue to amp up heavily and continue their man-influenced rainfall, with the equipment bought from Bharat coming in handy. Oil begins to be drilled this year and many companies are invited to invest. They expand 22,500 km into the south western grey states, incorporating its people into the country and giving everyone dis-located new and better housing due to the fuel boom.
  • Alsatia works on its economy by increasing the taxes and spending the extra money on housing and apartments so that more people can move to Alsatia, because more people equal less taxes.
  • Scandinavia builds up its military. Neutrality declared in French War. Red Claw attacks begin to stop a bit. More people ride ScanTrak. ScanTrak gains more money now. The national economy begins to improve a bit. Less nuclear warheads built this year.
    • Bharat offers Scandinavia help on the purging of the Red Claw. They also offer a joint missions to Mars as they have shown they would like to go to the Red Planet as well.
  • The Vietnamese launch their eighth communication satellite. The Kenyans expands their industry throughout their country. Zanzibar expands their industry throughout their country.
  • The Neolithuanians continue expanding their industry throughout their country.
  • Taiwanese continue to expand their industry throughout their country. They expand the New Taihoku colony by 238*50 sq km.
  • The Myanma continue to expand their industry throughout their country.
  • The British continue to expand their industry throughout their country.
  • The Tangierians continue to expand their industry into the newly annexed territory. They continue their efforts to convert the Muslim Moroccans to the new Christian Church.
  • Great German Federation: GGF Creates more jobs in Bavaria and Austria. GGF sends a Brandenburg a referendum to make it a part of the GGF, while the Referendum goes through aid, military protection and alliance continues. A new embassy is built in Vienna (Capital GGF) and Berlin (Capital of Brandenburg)) to increase Diplomatic relations. Military, infrastructure, tech and Economy are increased.
  • Neue Brandenburg declares neutrality in any global conflicts, in addition to beginning to disarm. The extra money used goes into expanding the welfare state.
  • Nippon amps up its military and produces a 20 more Ennetsu grade nuclear bombs mostly being the new Ennetsu V3 class, however the Nipponese military decide to practically stop nuclear weapon production (i.e. like 10 new bombs of the latest designs being produced) as Nippon's current stockpile of nuclear weapons is plenty large, and can easily defend itself with the amount of nuclear weapons it currently possesses. The Shinkansen project continues as the Honshu network begins to be joined up to the Shinkansen networks on the other islands via train tunnels. The new lot of bridges joining up the normal train and road networks of the Nipponese islands are also being constructed. Nippon's space programme send a space probe craft to investigate Mars this year following the success of the Venus probe. Nippon also bans the use of Chloro-fluorocarbons in the empire as a scientific report find that they cause damage to the ozone layer. Toshiba invent the ink jet printer. Anyway the war against the People's Republic of France begins to slow down as the Nipponese led coalition faces tough resistance from the collectivist forces. Seeing the support for the collectivist forces in France, some people in Nippon begin to denounce the war but these people are mostly collectivists themselves so the rest of the country take little notice of them. Support for the Nipponese Collectivist party falls to its lowest support levels for years, and some of the Nipponese collectivists meet with the Red Claw terrorist organization. The Red Claw hatch a plot to punish Nippon for its anti-collectivist views and to help free the people from capitalist oppression. The group try to assassinate the Emperor, but are unsuccessful as the bullet only grazes the Emperor and the bodyguards quickly stop the would-be assassin, Koichi Shido. Koichi Shido is put on trail along with other conspirators, but they are only caught after Koichi Shido left clues in his apartment. The rest of the Red Claw organisation in Nippon remain at large following the attempted assassination, and they go farther underground to plan a terrorist attack, one which will devastate the entire world order of capitalism. The National Diet declare Red Claw to be a terrorist organisation and enact a huge police operation to shut the group down. The Nipponese media also denounce all the collectivist groups who were responsible for the attack but this then spills into all collectivist activities in Nippon being treated with distrust and caution. In this years elections, the Nipponese collectivist party lose their seats in the National Diet and retain only one or two prefectural Diet seats. Nipponese distrust for the collectivists resembles something similar to OTL 1950s USA following the media backlash following the attempted assassination of the Emperor.
    • Bharat offers Nippon help on the purging of the Red Claw. They also offer a joint missions to Mars as they have shown they would like to go to the Red Planet as well.
    • Nippon accepts Bharat's help, and Nippon is also interested in the idea of going to Mars, mostly to find out if there's life on Mars. At this current time though, going to Mars is a god-awful small affair for the Nipponese government who are currently waging a war in France with the INN fighting from Ibiza to the Norfolk broads against enemy navies. I hope you got the song reference there ;)
  • Chamoru amp up the military and Norratsu seeing all of the global terror attacks, begin to put more funding into their truth serum research and also greatly increase security at their main headquarters base.
  • Shuubudan amps up the military and the hippuzu movement comes back into popularity mostly to denounce the war against the collectivists. Upon hearing the news of the attempted assassination of the Nipponese Emperor, most of the hippuzu shut up about attacking the anti-collectivist coalition invasion and just try to promote world peace in general.
  • The Commonwealth of Eetoria and Ngainkeha amp up their military and the commonwealth's nuclear scientists continue to spread the word across the globe about the long term effects of the nuclear bombs, the nuclear radiation, its damaging effects to humans and fallout. More military aid is sent to France to help get rid of the collectivist government.
  • Wonderlaand amps up its military and Wonderlaand film director Klas Petersen comes out of retirement to make a new film. His new film "One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest" (yes, based on the OTL movie/book of the same name but based in a mental hospital in Wonderlaand rather than in the USA) is hailed as his greatest work ever, some critics even calling it the greatest film of all time. It also starts investigations into the state of Wonderlaand's mental hospitals and it also leads to the outlawing of psychosurgery in the nation.
  • Mauritius amps up their military and Mauritian film director Hana Suzumiya-Aqilah releases her first film: Jaws. It is a film about a giant shark which begins terrorising the waters off the Mauritian coast, ending with a battle between the shark and the coast guard and police force; the shark dies in the end, but the film is one of the first big-budget horror films ever and it causes a lot of Mauritian beaches to be under-populated for a while. It takes a government investigation to help prove to people that no giant man-eating sharks exist in the waters around Mauritius.
  • The Federation of the America's federal government declares neutrality in the war against the European collectivists as the war doesn't affect the federation really. The federation opens several national parks across the nation as the federation becomes one of the world's most environmentally protective and green nations thanks to all its new laws protecting the unique natural environments of the federation. Mixxixxippi expands by 20,000 sq km and corn farming becomes very commonplace in the northwest of Mixxixxippi. The federal army amps up in all of the member states, especially in the Caribbean as the federation continues to push for supreme naval dominance in the Caribbean. The federation begins to try to connect the whole federation up to the pan-American motorway and rail networks respectively. The country also offers to buy arms from countries who do not need it, but they still have to be useful.
  • Newfoundland expands 84000 sq km. Meanwhile, while this new subgenre of rock continues gaining popularity, Szabó, Szabó és Zsengellér changes its name to Karmaszin Király.Their debut album with this name, "Az Elsőfokú Bíróság A Karmazsin Király".
  • Hungary continues updating its military.
  • Sikorsky comes out with the reverse-engineered Bahrati Superjet, but for military use, the Sik-225. Meanwhile, Sikorsky launches its first rocket glider and the world's first functional orbital space plane, the X-15. The Russian military places the HIMSSsamoderzhavets under SDL command.

1977

A collectivist government seizes control of the remains of Yemen, ending is vassalage to the Arabian Caliphate. This makes many in the Caliphate angry at the current Caliph, particularly the military.

The Turks seize control of the central parts of Anatolia (the parts that Turan owned before they bought their three outlets to the sea), and declare independence from Byzantine rule. Whether the Islamists, Collectivists, or Military seize control of the nation is to be seen.


  • Nippon amps up its military and produces a 15 more Ennetsu V3 class nuclear bombs, the Shinkansen project continues as the Honshu network begins to be joined up to the Shinkansen networks on the other islands via train tunnels. The new lot of bridges joining up the normal train and road networks of the Nipponese islands continue to be constructed too. Nippon's space programme also begins work on a new Global Positioning System (GPS) network of satellites to help people know where they are. This is intended mainly for military purposes, but Nippon asks Bharat to assit in the project so that the GPS network could go across all Asia. Nippon also asks the various European space agencies if they'd be interested in joining the GPS project, that way, GPS could surely cover the whole world. Anyway the war against the People's Republic of France ends after the two sides reach a stalemate. Nippon forms the Kingdom of France in the North west of France, around the border with the Brythonic Commonwealth as this is where the initial assault came from, and all the land the forces managed to take over successfully. Queen Marie I of Guinée is crowned Queen of France in a lavish ceremony in the Abbey of Saint-Étienne in the capital of the North French Kingdom, Caen. The police operation to shut the Red Claw terrorist group down continues as some more of their members are arrested but most of the leadership remain at large, many of the leaders fleeing aboard.
    • Greater German Federation: GGF would like to work with Nippon with GGFs current satellite.
    • Nippon would be delighted if the GGF would join the GPS project.
    • Russia joins the GPS programme and suggest triangulation as the method of making out positions.
  • Chamoru amp up the military and Norratsu begins testing its new "Magnetic resonance imaging" (MRI) Scanner, too.

  • The Kingdom of Northern France, amps up its military and Queen Marie I of France and Guinée joins her two kingdoms together in an act of dynastic union. She also helps her fellow free French set up a new government so the Nipponese-led rulers can leave the French to rule themselves as soon as possible. While wanting her new Kingdom to rule itself as soon as, Queen Marie does note that foreign military forces will have to stay in her Kingdom to protect it as the Kingdom builds its own army, strong enough to defend the nation. The Kingdom's borders with collectivist south France are fortified and the Kingdom vows to take back the rest of France.
    • I had planned on giving Guinée to a younger sister of Marie, but your edit killed mine. And what really irritates me is that the game doesn't seem to store my revisions in edit conflicts anymore.
    • Should you really be posting for France? ~ Scraw
    • I formed the new Kingdom of North France and it is currently a Nipponese puppet/under Nipponese occupation so of course I should. Not like I'm posting as Southern collectivist France who I haven't conquered. Then I give North France independence next year and I continue posting as North France as it is a former puppet state of Nippon's ~Von

Bavaria is unaffected by the Martial Law. Aid is on hold to Brandenburg for a while. GGF closes borders to Austria and temporary government is set up in Munich.
  • I have question can I slowly expand into France like building villages slightly over the border because they wouldn't really notice and taking they are occupied with the war. Willster22 (talk) 05:39, July 31, 2012 (UTC)
  • The war is over now, part of France has been "liberated" and France is divided between the Monarchical north and the collectivist south. ~Von.

The first phase is to improve traveling infrastructure by building more bridges and tunnels and replaced the aging railway system with a world-class one. This helps to divert the public's attention from Amir Khan and millions of jobs are created. For the first time, many people actually begin to trust the government in their handling of the country. Phase two is planned to begin next year.

1979

The Arabian Collectivists, whose position wasn't the strongest in the Civil War, are eradicated by a deal uniting the reluctant militarists and Republicans together. The two remaining sides make a pact on the official division of the former Arabian Caliphate's territory. The Militarists get the southern two thirds and the Republicans, who are the weaker faction, get the northernmost third.

This new agency will be responsible for patroling all Russian commonwealth airports. Meanwhile, more nuclear subs are made, and research into the "Energia" launcher gets officialy underway, able to carry in theory a reusable or semi-reusable spaceplane (OTL Buran) to the moon, and from there, potentialy to venus or beyond (note: these are just concepts for the energia project, and the Nuclear-powered rocket capable of carrying men to the moon was in fact canceled in favor to the space shuttle). Although landing on the moon and taking off from the lunar surfece will prove difficult, but not impossible. Worst case scenario contingencies place a Lunar lander in the cargo bay of the spaceplane. Meanwhile, Designs are made to incorporate the designs of the Samoderzhavers-class carriers into a new type of "Superheavy aircraft cruiser". Plans are also made to have lesser aircraft carriers, the "heavy aircraft cruisers"(to be developed into a ship similar to the OTL RFS Admiral Kuznetsov). The current Russian government falls, and elections are called for next year. However, the situation is reconciled by adding the seats from the Kazakhs to cities like Nizhny Novgorod, which grew in population so much to be underrepresented in comparison to the other parts of Russia. the Russian video game insustry revolutionizes with the invention of the first true home consoles. The Russian airlines use more modern techniques to navigate, and the first planes usign GPS technology, teh Tupoleev 222 is made. Plans for a supersonic civilian aircraft, designation "white goose" begin discussion.
    • Sorry mate, Nagin beat you to making the first supersonic civilian airplane, the Conkrua. You can of course make your own supersonic civilian aircraft but it's not the first. You could also have Russian airways buy the Conkrua planes to use themselves too. ~Von

  • Bharat's Boeing B-2707 continue to be rolled out in large numbers and many other airlines snap up the offer to buy it because of its benefits. A new model is roled out within 3 years of its first release. This model has much better engines along with a better material for the fuselarge. It is given the model number of B-2707 200. The R&D department have worked hard at this and they continue their efforts to remain a step ahead of the market. The Union Defense Force continues to grow and many ships are added to its ranks. B.A.S.A continues sending communications satellites to help communicate signals faster. B.A.S.A launches many satellites into space, and they all join up together, making them the first satellites to unite in space.

Communication with the satellites on Mars also continues more detailed maps of the red planet arrive. Meanwhile, more capsules for the building of the Asian Co-operation Space Station are sent up and and join up with the existing space station. The first astronauts also tour the station this year. Bharat still asks all the other nations from Asia to join in as well. The government begins to ciphon more funds from the army, diverting them into the space program. Many bridges continue construction, while land claiming continues in full speed for Mumbai. Many more skyscrapers are built on the outskirts of the main city. However, there are plans to demolish the the earlier and older skyscrapers to build better and larger ones. The demolishing will begin next year. Bharat's first metro system continues to be constructed along with tram systems in the city. The use of the metro and trams grow and many people ask the construction heads to consider joining it up to the airport. The bigger car companies manage to upgrade all their factories, but they begin to report higher losses. Still, the governemtn stands by their laws, as they know the increased flux of extra people not using cars can be handled by the new metros and trams. Advanced tanks are still manufactured for the army, and its troops are given given hard training to keep them up to date. Bharat builds more aircraft carriers and stlealth nuclear submarines. HP Computers make more progress this year and HP tech continue to make good progress on CGI technology as well and share their info with Orange. The sequel hits the cinemas this year.

Principia Moderni Map 1980 Key
A bomb planted by an anarchist blows up the Byzantine Senate while the Emperor is addressing the government. This decapitates the Byzantine Empire, which shortly falls apart due to the loss of the government. The Governor of the Hellas theme declares the independence of the Kingdom of Athens. The Cypriot Theme declares independence as the Kingdom of Cyprus. The Governor of the Thessalonic theme declares the independence of the Kingdom of Thessalonica. An illegitimate son of the last Emperor declares the independence of the Empire of Nicaea, including most of Byzantine Anatolia from the Trapezuntian border to the former Opsikon theme. The areas south of it form the Republic of Smyrna. The Aegean Sea areas, including Crete and Rhodes, form a state with capital in Naxos. It soon falls into influence of the Thessalonica. A rump Byzantine Republic manages to secure Thrace and the areas around the capital of Constantinople. Cilicia and Tripolitania also form independent states, while the remainder of former Byzantine territory in Anatolia is annexed by the Turks.

The Islamists in Turkey betray their Collectivist allies, and officially purge them from the Turkish government. They declare a new Islamic Republic of Turkey.

Islamists and Communists/Collectivists simply do mix, as the Collectivists are inherently atheistic.

    • President Ano Aaltonen of Mystiää accepts Aragon's offer of alliance.
    • The France player (Gal) has been inactive for a long time so it's not got a player, unless he comes back. But seeing how your both collectivists, I don't see why an alliance couldn't be formed between you two other than a difference in collectivist ideologies. Don't make my word on that though, I ain't a mod, that was just my two cents ~Von.

Sergei Pecherin as the fourth Doctor becomes the favorite of the series thus far. The Tupoleev aviations company produces the first prototype without engines of the Tupoleev-124 cargo craft, precurser to the An-225.

1981

The Imuhagh republic once again throws off all Sindustani influence, and they announce that they will never fall under the oppression of the Sindustanis again.

The Tuargeg have expanded to control all of the unclaimed areas to their north.

Afghanistan's Muslims start rioting all across Afghanistan. The Afghan response to the riots results in much of the Muslim population either killed or expelled. The ringleaders of the riots are arrested by Afghani soldiers.

Whoever wrote this has no clue why Persia and Afghanistan are split. It is because Afghanistan was and is a hindu-majority state. Over 85% of the population is hindu, it used to be over 90% but due to the tolerance the numbers has slightly gone down. So no, it is not an equal number and any attempts like this will lead them to be massacred.

The new draft army of former unemployed people is quite large as a lot of the poor jobless people where quite desperate and drawn to the fancy draft benefits but the move is seen to be quite controversial as these men are nowhere near as well trained or equipped as the Elite Wonderlaander Expeditions-styrka (EWES) who are also fighting in France and many opposition politicians see this simply as a way to reduce the unemployment figures.

Principia Moderni Map 1985 Key
Triplolitania and Cyrencia officially divided the weakened Libya between themselves. They discover oil in their territory and become extremely wealthy exploiting the resources. Cyrencia begins a project with Egypt to utilize the Nile River to irrigate their arid desert land.

Moldavia declares independence from Russia, and officially joins Danubia. Translyvania also joins Danubia, as their economy has suffered for years.

The Hungarian colony of Namib declares independence from Hungary as the Republic of Namib.

A collectivist group seizes control of approximately the OTL nation of Afghanistan, with the rest of the state staying with Bharat.

I thought Moldavia was supposed to be part of Ukraine but whatever, its all the same to me.
The Moldovians are much closer to the Romainians (who, along with the Romanian Transylvanians, are part of Danubia) than they are to the Ukrainians, especially since part of their territory used to be owned by Romania.
Exactly. so much that OTL Romania was formed by Wallachia and Moldavia.
  • Elsass declares war on the Republic of Namib and calls for help from the Kingdom of France, Wales and the Greater German Federation. The troops are shipped by sea from ports recently opened to Elsass after the Invasion of the PRF by the KF.
    • That's impossible. You're landlocked.
    • Read my talk page then come back here. Willster22 (talk)
    • You aren't going to be able to send a full-on invasian force by just borrowing a few ports while you are at war with a much larger nation.
    • War over and this is a small force taking that a newly independent state would be pretty easy to beat. Willster22 (talk)
    • A newly independent state is going to really want their freedom, having just gained it, and not going to let themselves be conquered. You aren't going to be able to send a large enough force to declare war. In any case, you can't make any more colonies, so your war would be pointless.
    • Also, we didn't win enough land from the PRF for Elsass and the KF to get joined together. Also, you ending this war now? If so, since it's so few pixels Elsass can just have them. I'll do another war to try to take the rest of north france from the PRF. But also a piece of advice, this isn't the time to go around making colonies any more, its the 1980s. ~Von.
  • Calora sends aids to their fellow Collectivists in the PRF. The Caloran collectivist government has started to become unpopular, however.
  • Australia renames Northern New Zealand to Nova Zealandia and grants it a full independence, leaving all the colonists and soldiers who were there during the day of independence for the fate of new NZ government.
    • Why would you name the nation after the Dutch province Zeeland? Something Maori (like Aotearoa or an Australian/English name of your own design would be more appropriate ~Von.
    • Why would he give it an English name? If anything, it should be a name from some Indian language (as Australia is mostly former Bharati territory), or Russian, as Northern New Zealand was colonized by Russia.
    • Because Australia was originally an English state (founded by English immigrants from London if I remember his posts correctly). But admittedly I forgot about it merging with the Bharati colonies to make the Australia we have today so there is a big shout for an Indian name seeing now most his nation is of Indian descent now. I guess he could go for Russian as well, but I'd say go some sort of Indian-English-Maori name rather than his current Dutch one ~Von
    • Name your colonies/nations as you please, but please do not tell me how to name my own.
    • It is totally random and a bit ASB for the Australians to randomly choose a Dutch area to name their nation after.

  • Afghanistan's army continues training hard in war games. The advanced country gets dragged into a fruitless civil-war (why would there be a succession, it makes no sense for a group to just decide they want power and amass enough support in a first world country to do so, protests yes but not this!!). The army is used and they wait for their nation to help them out.

I can post tonight , what has changed, did Scraw keep my nation safe?? These are not the droids you are looking for. 02:11, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

Woah ... the Russian commonwealth acts as a parallel to the OTL British Commonwealth of Nations, St Petersburg does not control any of their policies. The only thing close to that is the defence pact, and even then, its only forces nations to defend one another if some nation attacks another one. The commonwealth nations have seats in the Russian Senate, they in some minuscule way control the Russian policy, not the other way around(although this was just me not wanting to worry about subtracting numbers from the Duma seats because others are not part of it any more). Moldavia breaking away makes some sense, although I originally wanted them to be part of Ukraine, since its formation, its none of our business. The Russian commonwealth is a glorified military alliance with a personal union. Nations under the flag of the Russian commonwealth are like Canada and Britain. Same monarch, completely different government. Separating from it would make no sense. The commonwealth military benefits with little to no consequences on foreign policy.-Lx

Nothing really happened involving your nation, except that Brittany might be wary as France keeps having wars with itself.

  • Czech government orders a report on the Stranierismo cult that grows.

While this occurs, the nation is re-organized to include the civilians as well as much as the aristocracy, Alliances are asked to the Asians for purely economic and political purposes Now please don't forget to add me in the map, I have been playing this game since 1960 and every five turns I'm forgotten even if I post the five turns and I'm getting tired of that, that's why I left for some turns then come back.

  • I am back. Scandinavia declares the nations of Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Trancaucasia national enemies, alongside any other nation who left the Russian Commonwealth. The government is appalled that these nations would do the ridiculous actions of seceding from a commonwealth. Political pundits suspect that they will be subject to invasion by much large and more powerful nations. In the national news, the satellite Voyager 2 is launched from Stockholm and Voyager 3 is launched from Greenland. The government creates plans for a new city in Greenland called Greenland City that will hopefully revitalize the Greenlandic economy and boost tourism, trade, and business on the subcontinent. In the International League, Scandinavia proposes an International Peacekeeping Force, a military unit serving the IL instead of every nation sending their own military forces to war. The Mir space station is launched (well, this is Russian, but technically what either nations does can also be posted by the other, I suppose.) and it docks with the European Space Station.

Fallout reaches northern Norway and Sweden, as well as parts of Finland and Russia. This is suspected work of hte last remnants of the Red Claw in Scandinavia.

    • Poland-Lithuania-Belarus is now known as the Baltic Confederacy. They seceded from the Russians because they have a history of nationalism. This reeks of Scandinavia poking their nose where it doesn't belong.
    • Oh. I corrected that. Nationalism or no nationalism, it has been part of Russia for centuries now. And you can't say that. Largely because what's a Russian matter is a Scandinavian and Welsh matter, what's a Scandinavian matter is a Russian and Welsh matter, what's a Welsh matter is a Scandinavian and Welsh matter. In case you haven't noticed, we're in personal and economic union and soon dynastic union. So this does not reek as you speak of it.'

    • Is the Orange Entertainment Centre similar to the North American version of the NES? Because There is the ファミコン (Famikon) already created by the 星ザコ (Hoshizako) (Nintendo equivalent) in Saigyō. Also, a bridge from Cornwall to Brittany is pretty much somewhat impossible (I think), even in OTL modern days. -Kogasa
    • It's actually more of the OTL Channel than it is a bridge. The OEC is similar in regards to the shape and feel of the NES, but I plan on launching different games compared to OTL. I plan to launch the Dirt Racing series, The Mass Effect franchise and the Elder Scrolls Games, so I guess its more like an xbox game playwise. (All the games I mentioned above won't be available until later.)
